Clarksville City Council - Ward 10Clarksville, TN – The city council met in its usual first of the month session. It was a long meeting lasting around 2.5 hours. Several items of note were discussed and voted on.

Ordinance 15-2012-13 (Human Relations Commission) – If you recall from my October 12th article, I had several questions and concerns about the commission proposal. I was able to address those issues last night.

As readers will recall, I had concern with the establishment of “ benchmarks” with any recommendations of this commission to the city. I asked Councilwoman Johnson to explain what she meant by the term. She did not have a ready definition as to what it meant and stated she would rely on the commission to determine that. «Read the rest of this article»

New studies reinforce American Heart Association’s stand on limiting Sodium intake

 

Suggestions by some groups that healthy people can consume more sodium are based on incorrect analyses of observational studies and misinterpretations of clinical research.

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – New studies support limiting daily sodium consumption to less than 1,500 milligrams, according to a new American Heart Association presidential advisory.

The advisory, published in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation, is based on a thorough review of recent laboratory, animal, observational and clinical studies that reaffirm the  association’s 2011 advisory that limiting sodium (salt) to less than 1,500 mg per day is linked to a decreased risk of high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease, including stroke.

NASA’s FOXSI X-Ray Telescope ready to launch in November

 

Written by Karen Fox
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – Those who watch the sun are regularly treated to brilliant shows – dancing loops of solar material rise up, dark magnetic regions called sunspots twist across the surface, and dazzling flares of light and radiation explode into space. But there are smaller, barely visible events, too: much smaller and more frequent eruptions called nanoflares.

Depending on how many and how energetic these are, nanoflares may be the missing piece of the puzzle to help understand what seeds the cascade that causes a much bigger flare, or to explain how the sun transfers so much energy to its atmosphere that it’s actually hotter than the surface.

Looking down the telescope tube on FOXSI ­ the Focusing Optics X-ray Solar Imager ­ reveals state-of-the-art optics that will help focus hard x-rays, which usually simply pass right through telescope mirrors. (Credit: NASA/S. Christe)
